Submit URL To Google Webmaster: Fetch as Google


In order to submit a URL to Google, you need to have an account with Google Search Console (Previously know as Google Webmaster).

Considering you have an account with Google Search Console, go to “Crawl” on the left pane. Under “Crawl” go to “Fetch as Google“. To make it easy for you here is the direct link to Fetch as Google.

You can request Google to either perform “Fetch” or “Fetch and Render” operation. Fetch operation is slightly faster than the “Fetch and Render“.

Whats the use of “Fetch as Google“?


To find out if your page is suitable for indexing by the Google, we use “Fetch as Google” tool.  This tool basically lets us know any crawl issues on your site and tests how Google crawls a page.

If a there are no errors in your fetch then it displays Complete with a green tick mark under the Status column. If a fetch has an error, it displays an appropriate message. Such as this example below:
